Wash lentils in cold water.
In a saucepan, combine lentils, water, turmeric and garlic. Cover and simmer 30 minutes or until lentils are tender. Uncover and cook 2-3 minutes to reduce excess liquid.
Heat ghee in a saucepan. Add onion and fry gently 5 minutes. Add Garam Masala, ginger, coriander and cayenne pepper; cook gently 1 minute. Add mixture to lentils and stir well. Garnish with cilantro, if desired.
NOTE: For a less fiery flavor, reduce cayenne pepper.
Your Dhal is ready. Good luck!
